Is it possible to pull the data from multiple content types into a theme template?

Ex: If I had a website with two different content types, News and Events - and wanted to display the most 5 most recent published items from both of the content types on a single page.

Thanks,

hello type and template are independant !
the category and template are linked
you can assign the any type on category and same template on multiple category

Sorry if I haven't explained myself correctly :)

If you go to this site that I'm making with WordPress you'll see what I mean:

dev.nathanielwatts.com/bobbywilsongolf/

So on this hompage - I'm pulling different submitted content types.

You can see the Schedule [which is one content type]:
it is listing the 3 most recent events coming up.

Then you see Affiliates [which is a second content type]:
which is displaying 4 of his most recent affiliates.

You can see here that there is data from multiple content types being pulled from the database and getting displayed with a single template.

Is something like this possible?

Thanks for your help!
